Park Life

Categories: Geography General
We are in quite a strange location for a school in that we are situated in a business park which holds the council offices, liesure centre, theatre, wedding and conference venue and a lot of parkland. As it was a beautiful spring day today, s2 took advantage of the weather to get out and about and use our extended school grounds to look at local environmental quality. Without having to go down the road of parental consents, we were able to walk a mile exactly and survey four very different locations. There are lots of potential uses of the school grounds and the eco-club has already done a litter study, and I liked David Rogers' idea of a micro climate study too. This is defintely something I'd like to explore a bit, and I think that the class appreciated getting out in the good weather and doing something out of the classroom environment. I mapped our walk using my phone and imported the pictures from flickr afterwards. Here's our walk, results hopefully to follow after the holidays:
